Cronenberg Craziness

What started out as a pretty interesting idea turned into a voyeuristic nightmare of images that one does not need to have introduced into your subconscious. We left the theatre halfway through this terrible film, along with several others—something I never do. Cronenberg’s premise went off the rails at some point. The quick cuts remind one of the stories about Billy Friedkin’s subliminal shenanigans in The Excorcist, which discredited his story-telling and almost got him in big trouble. I don’t need to be manipulated into feeling dark, hopeless, despair, disgust, and shock. Life is hard enough. Don’t waste your time or money on this STUPID film.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
